Madaras said:Though you think you disagree with me you actually don't. I never said I wanted "Openly homosexual characters" I expect them to be brutally discriminated against. Much like the video trailer of that woman being beaten and about to be hung. However I do think there is room in the game world (especially since it's become much more massive than ever) to include them. Whether it be in some dark secret location. A couple found in the woods, or even a safe haven only heard about in rumors that you could eventually find where they can be open. I actually hope for a quest around this very thing that would include a mob that has learned of the town's location and tries to destroy it. ›››
I admit that I definitely misunderstood you there. I thought that you implied that treatment of gay community should be a theme directly tackled by studio. I don't think that they should do that, given that focus on homosexuality and how brutally society deals with it could get CDPR in a PR mess. However, there certainly is a room for inclusion. I would not go as far as making Geralt a paragon of gay community, but would have nothing against something like Brokeback Mountain Easter-egg with two hunters camping in the woods, or a quest during which it turns out that someone just happens to be gay, which Geralt happens to learn as the quest progresses. Actually, you can even come across male prostitues in TW2 in brothels, but they are fewer and not as obvious as women, due to the game society's nature.
17.11.2013 @ 00:34I agree with what .Volsung. already said. On top of that I would like to add that adding openly homosexual characters to the game would not be very coherent with the world built in books and games. Society Witcher's world is much like general European society in middle ages - discriminating and not afraid to be brutal towards people who are not like you. Homosexuals wouldn't be treated any better, if not worse, than elves. Only characters in the book that are mentioned or hinted on as homosexuals are some of witches and sorcerers and despite grasping significant amount of political power they still tend to keep it under wraps from anyone outside of the circle of magic users, presumably to not weaken their status among noblemen, rulers, and military, etc.
25.07.2013 @ 17:13I will echo ones that would rather to see something new. I do not want CDPR to become yet another of the developers defined by one series the just keep pumping out every few years, like SCE Santa Monica and their God of War games. I am also concerned that consistent sticking with the witcher universe will tire gamers and CDPR team resulting in poorly made and/or poorly received games.
I would rather see something new that we did not see enough of yet. CDPR did that with dark fantasy by making The Witcher games. Now, I hope, they will do that with cyberpunk. No one knows what they might try next, but I would be interested in a game in urban fantasy setting (like World of Darkness, preferably mages or werewolves rather than vampires) or steampunk. Or maybe something new and completly off the grid, like a game about "cavemen", with shamans and tribes' politics.
27.06.2013 @ 16:46I must say that I really like the compromise CDPR came up with regarding elixir consumption. You still need to think ahead, but also have ability to utilize them as needed during combat. I hope that an old toxicity bar will make a return and different elixirs will have different levels of toxicity, allowing for more complex combinations and strategies for alchemy focused witchers.
